Documentary examining hearings in Austin at the State Board of Education concerning sexism in children's textbooks. Program is comprised of interviews, music, and tapes on the hearings. The purposes of the hearing were to draw attention to the fact that sexism is in textbooks, and that the state of Texas is the largest buyer of text books in the world. Music by Dory Previn, Buffy Sainte Marie, Jim Kweskin Jug Band, Joy of Cooking. Note: three books recommended by task force were adopted and two that didn't were changed in 160 places. Much is field recording of questionable quality.
